Revision Options After CoolSculpting Treatments
Cryolipolysis is a trending fat reduction treatment that is attracting attention because it does not involve going under the knife. Like any cosmetic procedure, surgical or not, some patients may feel unsatisfied with their results. Also known as “fat freezing” procedures, cryolipolysis treatments are approached with radiofrequency and laser treatments that target underlying tissues to break down fat cells. Common treatments include Coolsculpting and other body contouring procedures. In some cases, patients may notice uneven or asymmetrical results.
When to Consider Revision Treatment
Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may not be able to realistically achieve certain results through non-invasive cosmetic treatments like CoolSculpting. A cryolipolysis revision treatment may be right for you if you’ve experienced complications following your cryolipolysis treatment, such as:
- Changes to fat layers
- Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH)
If you haven’t experienced severe adverse effects from your CoolSculpting or other fat-freezing treatment but are interested in removing larger deposits of fat, speak with Dr. Franckle about whether a revision is best suited for your desired result.
Available Cryolipolysis Revision Techniques
Though there are non-surgical body contouring options available, these results can be inconsistent. Conventional liposuction treatment may be the best method to address stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction does require some downtime following the procedure, but it only requires a small incision without as much guesswork as fat freezing techniques. You can enjoy immediate results by opting to undergo surgery, unlike cryolipolysis, which typically involves a weeks-long waiting period before the final result is noticeable.
